New York, NY (PRWEB) January 13, 2014
Manthan Systems, the global leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics solutions for retailers, is pleased to announce that their retail partner, Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc., has won the Tech Innovation Award for Enterprise/Business Intelligence from Progressive Grocer Tech for their deployment of Manthan’s ARC Merchandise Analytics. The award will be presented to Steve Black, Sprouts’ chief information and marketing officer, on Monday, Jan. 13, at noon in the Stagnito Media booth (#1128) at the National Retail Federation’s 2014 Big Show.
“With the deployment of Manthan’s ARC BI Platform and Merchandise Analytics software, Sprouts has empowered employees throughout its organization to make better, faster decisions that are based on a huge amount of data culled from disparate sources,” said Joseph Tarnowski, editor of Progressive Grocer Tech. “Essentially, it allows the retailer to spend more time on the customers and take action, as compared to collecting data.”
Operating 169 stores across nine states, Sprouts Farmers Market is a fresh, natural and organic specialty retailer that completed mergers in 2011 and 2012, with Henry’s Market and Sunflower Farmers Market. This resulted in a mix of competing IT applications to manage the business and the ARC BI Platform has enabled Sprouts to aggregate retail data from multiple sources so that merchandisers, marketers, store operations professionals and executives can access a single application to gain insights regarding business performance in real-time.
“We are thrilled to know that Sprouts is using Manthan to meet their reporting needs. We offer our sincere congratulations to Steve Black and his team on this award,” commented Kevin J. Walker, GM of the Americas for Manthan. “Our approach with all of our customers has always been one of partnership, and distinctions such as this one are a clear indication that when a retailer teams up with the right technology provider, significant value can be added across the retail organization.”
Manthan will be showcasing its suite of ARC solutions at Booth #2775 at the upcoming NRF 103rd Annual Convention and Expo in New York City, New York, from January 12-15, 2014. To schedule an appointment with Manthan at the NRF Convention, please contact the company directly.
